Winter Wish List

Winter is creeping in with regards to the temperature really beginning to drop. This has led to me scanning online for a variety of items I want in my winter wardrobe. 70's styled clothes seem to really be influecing my fashion picks at the moment and you can see this from the items I have chosen. The colourful prints and interesting shapes would really help my winter wardrobe not look so dull.

Winter Wish List Details

Floppy Hat £14:99 Miss Guided
Chunky Knit Cardi £28 Bank Fashion
Long Sleeved Maxi £22 Forever 21
Roll Nick Jumper £21:99 Miss Guided
Faux Leather Flares £68 Shopbop
Chunky Boots £29:99 New Look
I am forever watching 70's vintage styled long sleeved maxi dresses on eBay at the moment, however because they are all individual items I have included a similar style to what I want from forever 21.I just think with the chunky knit cardi and chunky boots it will look great as a more classy winter outfit. It's also a look that could transfer from day to night by just adding some sandals instead of boots. The roll neck is a must as it can just be thrown on with anything and you instantly feel warm and snug. However I do envision it with the crazy flare faux leather trousers. It will help dumb down the shockingness of the trousers by creating a more simple feel with the jumper. But aren't those trousers just incredible? Now where to find £70.....

70s Boohoo Print OOTD

70's psychedelic prints hidden under faux fur are a great way to make a statement. Add some extreme wedges for height and a over the hair headband and you will fit right in with the 70's vibe.


 70's Boohoo Print OOTD details

Dress- Boohoo
Wedges- £7 H&M sale
Coat- TFNC from asos (old but similar here)
Headband- £2 Primark
Glenn brought me this beautiful dress for my birthday and I instantly knew how I wanted to wear it. I don't know how people can stick to one particular style because there are so many different styles I like I cannot help but explore. I have now been obsessively looking at vintage 70s maxi dresses on eBay waiting for the perfect one to come into my life (as long as it's cheap obviously, as I do love a bargain). This is my last outfit with my hair like this, it has had a slight transformation this week that I cannot wait to share. Hope this outfit has brightened your day.

Fall Beach OOTD

Yet another beach background, but this time it's my fall beach outfit. With spots of rain and cool breezes the beach is still a calm place for a late morning stroll.

OOTD Details

Coat- £5 Vintage eBay
Scarf- Present (similar here)
Bag- Present (similar style here)
Shoes- £25 Topshop Sale

This coat is my go to winter coat. I brought this jacket just before summer so haven't had much chance to wear it until now. It's to big but I love the oversized look anyway so it's a perfect A/W coat for me. These shoes are just brilliant because they were great for the summer but I can still wear them with tights and little socks now the weather is colder, and they are metallic silver....loooove. Hope you've all got a lovely weekend ahead and your not relying on the miserable weather here in the UK.

Wells Deli Hunstanton

When we visited the seaside a few weeks ago we visited two beaches Brancastor and Hunstanton. Hunstanton is more of your typical seaside resort with the 2p slot machines and plenty of ice cream parlour's. We stopped off in Wells Deli for a refreshment, this cute little cafe with plenty of yummy cakes, coffee, tea and milkshake choices.

I opted for the Wells Deli praline milkshake (a few of us did), Glenn went for an oreo one and my little sister Tiahne had a unusual cola which was delicious. The cakes looked incredible but Glenn and I had already decided we wanted some chunky chips, well when your by the sea it' s a tradition. So after being refreshed we popped next door to fishers and increased our salt count with some hot seaside goodness.

Tailored Monochrome ootd ft Boohoo

Tailored looks can take you up a notch with regards to looking like you have authority or maybe on a power trip. If you want to dumb them down so you look more casual rather than heading to the office then add a hat and some chunky cleated boots.

Tailored Monochrome OOTD Details

Culottes- £20 Boohoo
Shirt- Prada (fiances)
Bag- £1:50 Carboot 
Boots- £25 F&F
Hat- £3 eBay

This monochrome look is an outfit I just love. It's classy, very stylish and I don't know what it is about hats but they just instantly make any outfit so much cooler.I knew I wanted some new winter boots and Tesco have not disappointed with their collection. These are super comfy and very light because of the cleated heel. My boohoo culottes are still a fav purchase this year and I feel are becoming a staple piece for all seasons. You've seen them on the blog before here but in a more summery vibe. Glenn and I are celebrating 4 years together today with a classy £9:50 sun holiday to the sea, well we have got a wedding to save for. Hope you all have a lovely Friday and enjoy the weekend.

AW14 Debenhams Competition

Debenhams are running another seasoned based competition for bloggers. The rules are simple, you have to put an outfit together for your style and then one for another blogger based around one of the the key AW trends. I decided to base my outfit around the Pastel Palette trend (mainly because I really like looking like a unicorn has thrown up on me at the moment) and then chose the Modern Military trend for fellow blogger Cassy from Bang Blitz.

Debenhams Pastel Palette

All items can be found here.

I based this look mainly around soft pink tones and textures by breaking it up with the clashing colours of the check print. Doubling up the belt over the skirt with the jumper tucked in will really compliment the colours of the amazing brogues that I would really like to add to my shoe collection. These colours are spot on with the pastel AW trends and I feel they create a more summery feel to what will become a bitter cold time of the year.

Modern Military

All items available here

So I put this look together based on what I think Cassy from Bang Blitz would enjoy (hope you like it). I chose Cassy because she is one of my fav bloggers with regards to really pushing the boundaries with her looks. She, like me is a big lover of stand out shoes and these snake skin buckle boots beat a normal black boot any day, the only thing that I feel is missing for her is some crazy ankle socks. Cassy also has a way of styling trousers so they look retro (which I am so jealous of because I have a love/hate relationship with pants) so I thought these ankle grazers would really suit her style. This is a very simple monochrome look with certain touches that make it not so average. Monchrome is also a trend that will always be around but looks even better with layers in the AW months.

Brancastor Outfit

Windy late mornings on sandy beaches with crashing waves, complemented by cosy knits and autumn boots.

Outfit Details

Poncho- Mums
Skirt- H&M
Boots- Primark

A few weeks ago we spent a late morning with my family strolling down Brancastor beach, it was rather windy and we didn't stay for long but the view was beautiful. My sister had forgotten her coat so my mum lent her this knitted poncho which really complemented her outfit. Even her wind swept hair fitted in perfectly with the surrounding. I have a lot of outfit photos to share with you over the next few weeks, using the background to compliment the look. Trying to be more creative with the outfit photos. Hope you like.
